Muna’s death shocked not only his colleagues and friends, but also his fans; as many were clueless on his critical health condition. Muna was a very private person and refused to beg the public for assistance in covering the expense of his regular dialysis treatment. The late actor reportedly needed only N50k for dialysis per day and Muna allegedly could not afford this, ultimately leading to his death due to delayed treatments.
